Being a mother and speech therapist, I found a lack resources that contained a strong South African flavour in terms of what is common for us.
Alphabet books contained /a/ is for alligator and /i/ is for igloo. Such examples would have left my child confused as we call alligators crocodiles and she would be seeing more apples than crocodiles in her life!
This got me thinking that surely I can use my speech therapy knowledge to make resources for young children that are culturally appropriate for South Africans hearts and minds.
One idea became many ideas and since we are based in the beautiful valley of Burgersfort in Limpopo, we decided to expand and give ladies across South Africa a chance to become agents for The Speech Bubble Co. Thus far we have over 90 agents in all provinces in South Africa.
